This neuromuscular stimulator has nine discrete waveforms: Interferential (4 pole), Premodulated (2 pole), Medium Frequency (Russian), Biphasic, High Volt Pulsed Galvanic, Microcurrent, TENS-Asymmetrical Biphasic, TENS-Symmetrical Biphasic and Galvanic (Continuous DC) waveforms. In addition the clinician can set on/off times, up and down ramps, pulse width and frequency along with frequency modulation for some of the waveforms. The 240 offers both laser and infrared technology. Unlike most other units, the 240 has the light therapy software already built into the unit. All you need to do is purchase either the laser probe or the cluster probe for light therapy capabilities.
There are numerous anatomical and waveform specific protocols complete with electrode placement guidance. Once a protocol is selected, the Sys*Stim 240 will go to the treatment page, electrodes can be placed on the patient and the intensity control can be adjusted to begin the treatment. Clinicians may also store their own treatment protocols for later use.
An optional mobile treatment cart » (model 73) has three shelves and can safely hold any Mettler Sonicator, Sys*Stim or Sonicator Plus unit(s) along with their accessories.
An optional battery pack may be purchased so that therapy can be taken on the road. To make this even easier, an optional carrying bag » made especially for the Sys*Stim 240 and its accessories is also available.
